Jaap van der Meer of TAUS (Translation Automation User Society) says in his recent post about Google Translation Toolkit:
Translators using the Translation Toolkit ‘share’ their translations with Google. If 100,000 translators start using the service, Google will be harvesting 50 billion words of good quality translation data per year to help Google improve their automatic translation engines. In addition translators may be uploading their own (or their customers’) TMs.
